All too often, we hear about renters who are stuck with their decor because they can't paint their white walls. While it can feel limiting at first glance, white can have its advantages - it can make a space feel bright and airy and opens up a plethora of decorating options. Here are ten of our favorite white-walled nurseries and reasons why they work:

5. Elke's Sweet-as-Honey Space: As if the warm wood tones and brightly colored statement rug aren't enough, Elke's mom made sure that her daughter's room would be a stunner with the addition of metallic decals on the walls. There are so many options for removable decals today - it's a great way to spice up the white walls of a rental.
